if you come to me with a question, i won’t give you an answer.
if you ask for my advice, i won’t give you a recommendation.
at best i’ll give you a pointer, a suggestion. perhaps a direction, a map. you’ll then start walking, creating your own route, getting lost and finding your way again. you’ll see other people’s footsteps often, some old and some fresh, and sometimes you’ll walk open territories no one has visited before. you’ll meet Eureka and dance together and laugh in joy, you’ll cry with Despair, which is not a bad thing.
if you want a lesson, i won’t give you instruction.
if you want guidance, but i won’t show you.
i want you to have fun too. i won’t spoil your journey.
or maybe i just have no idea and this is my fancy excuse to slip away from the situation?
Thank you, el trastero, couldn't have said it any better.
